Rigid Industries Dually 2X2 White LED Spot, experiences?

Hi,

I am looking at adding some bright lights to my TW and I have Denali lights from twisted trotter and they are good but I saw this other option, the Rigid Duallies, and i like them, they are also very bright.

I told a friend about them (because he has them) and commented that they were not the best, and started fail after only 8 months! So it made me wonder if they are worth that kind of money.

Please comment!

Mine are great too and super bright, but my buddy has the twisted throttle lights and they seem just as bright.

I have 6 of them on the truck and are great! Spots and floods are a good combo.

Plus one on the combo. My buddy bought spots set and I bought floods and we swapped to get one of each. It's a nicer combo along with hid low beam

I ordered from some diesel site and they were $155 shipped

I ordered directly from Rigid and received one that was defective. They said they'd send a replacement, but didn't. The next week they again didn't send a replacement. Eventually they did send a replacement. I cannot figure out why they lied for a couple of weeks.

The brackets are made of coarse-grained "steel" and break.

Then at 3 Lbs per pair they may be better for trucks and jeeps.

I have a pair of the spots and a pair of the floods and could not be happier. The floods are on all the time and the spots are wired to turn on with my high beam. I have had the floods for about two years and the spots for one. No problems with the brackets or the lights themselves.

Light Bar

Walrond,

Cool setup.
What is the light bar do you have on these pictures and where did you get it?

Thanks,
Assedo
